Please join us for a glass of wine (or tequila) and a panel discussion to celebrate the publication of “What Would Virginia Woolf Do? And Other Questions I Ask Myself As I Attempt to Age Without Apology.”

Laurie Abraham will moderate a conversation with Nina and writers Lucinda Rosenfeld and Bliss Broyard.

She’s the author of two books, Mama Might Be Better Off Dead: The Failure of Health Care in Urban America and The Husbands and Wives Club: A Year in the Life of a Couples Therapy Group, and many magazine articles. She’s the mother of two girls and lives in Brooklyn.
